A big winner in the first leg (5-0), Manchester City hosts FC Basel on Wednesday (20.45) in the 8th final of the Champions League. For this meeting, Pep Guardiola is deprived of Mendy and Fernandinho, wounded. The Catalan coach should very logically rotate with the lead taken in the first run. For his part, Raphael Wicky must do without Xhaka, suspended.
Here is the likely composition of the two teams:
Manchester City: Bravo – Danilo, Kompany (c), Laporte, Delph – Foden, Gundogan, David Silva – Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Zinchenko.
FC Basel: Vaclik – Lang, Lacroix, Suchy, Riveros, Petretta – Zuffi (c), Serey Dié – Stocker, Oberlin, Elyounoussi.
